About-

Christianity is dying—in parts of the world it is already dead. Yet there is hope, but it will require radical surgery that many are unprepared to accept as necessary. The vast behemoth that calls itself institutional Christianity must die if the Jesus Movement upon which it was founded is to live. The essential message of the Christian gospel is that death leads to new life. Is Christianity ready to embrace this truth and die so that it can live?

Endorsements & Reviews-

“An unflinching look at the ills plaguing western institutional Christianity. Mike's decades of service as a pastor in the American Midwest, combined with his deep knowledge of church history, give weight to both his troubling diagnosis and his startling prescription for a cure. A compelling read that challenges us to reevaluate how we 'do church' and what it means to be members of the body of Christ.”

—Rich Kruiswyk, professional engineer
